well in a big field I try to keep in mind Im not better than any of them, so I tend to play a lot of loose and hoping to win the coinflips and take gambles once im chip lead and I know I have the advantage, I slow it down a lot.  In a smaller field under 100 players, I try to just keep it straight forward.
